Exchange 2010 GAL Disply Details

terminalb used Ask the Experts™
Hello Experts,

Exchange 2010 and Server 2008 R2 environment.  I've spent as much time as I can researching this and it's time to use a lifeline.  This should be fairly easy I would think.  I'm trying to modify the mailbox details seen in the GAL for Exchange 2010 OWA, ie Phone Number, Office, Address, etc.  A screenshot of what I'm referring to can be found here:

I know most of these attributes are linked back to AD under the General tab of an object's properties, but how would I add a custom one?  Let's say for argument's sake I wanted to include 'Favorite Color'.  Should I be looking at at Extension / Custom Attributes?

Thanks in advance.
